Metronomes synchronize because of Sympathetic ressonance.

Well, I went on the hunt and this is what I found: 

N-Sync | MythBusters

AH HA! I thought I remembered my high school physics class.

How on Earth do mechanical metronomes synchronize? I watched several different videos showing metronomes synchronizing and it makes no sense to me, except for when the metronomes were placed on a board on two tin cans. The energy of the instruments would transfer to the board and change the timing, but I don't see how energy becomes synchronized when standing on their own.

I just came across this little gem.  I've always been a big fan of both Olivia Newton-John and ABBA, and I had a big crush on Andy Gibb when I was in my early teens. (giggle giggle)

Olivia is fabulous!

I'd like to get out of town during the musical festival at the expence of the festival producers.  I know I'm not the only one it bothers. Again, I live about 3/4 of a mile from it. People who live closer must have more noise abuse - though because of my hearing/vestibular problem it effects me more than others.

On dance music - some of the digital dance club beats I've heard about in Europe are absolutely terrible.  Perhaps it takes synthetic drugs, or MDMA (ecstacy) to tollerate it.

Chris, me thinks you should get out of town during the music festival. The "noise" has to be mind blowing (in a bad way).

Loren, Towner is very talented, no doubt. However, Dick Clark's Bandstand kids would give this song a thumbs down--no beat and ya can't dance to it!

Loren,

I've been to terrible theaters, and amphitheateres where the sound quality is terrible.

Fortunately some, maybe very few  know about sound quality.

The Ralph Towner recording is great.

Loren,

Accoustical engineers for concert halls along with sound engineers make all the difference between a terrible  and good performance.

The "Spirit Lake" composition  encompasses full musical characteristics.

I just went through four days of musical abuse from a concert downtown called  "Bottle Rock."

It's about 4200 feet from my house. It goes on for four days and lasts from 10 am to 10 pm each day. Usually all I hear is the base drum ricocheting off the hill that vibrates the floor of my house. It's really irritating.   I'm not kidding when I tell you that a couple of days ago I went outside and saw water in a bowl I have outside for my cats vibrating.

This is noise abuse. 

This concert brings in big dollars for the murchants - the producers and the 'fair' ground exposition. Residents are fucked by the noise.

On the rare occation that weather conditions permit I am able to hear a band play while being able to understand the singer - only though if it's a band I know with a song I recognize.

Venues such as this are a reason why band's aren't able to play more gigs.  This has been going on for four seasons.  My complaints to the police department are met with - The producer is a local guy, I'm sure he cares about the citizens who live in his community.

For a million dollars I'd stay under one of the four stages the entire time of the concert. The producers of that are pieces of shit along with the police department for issuing the amplified noise permit and the state who owns the exposition space the base noise eminates from need a good sound engineer to curtail the noise from local residents. My brother says I should find a lawyer and walk around the neighborhoods effecte to file a class action law suit.

 I think it's good that this is generally good for the broader community, but would like to sure them so I can sound insulate my house.

I sent letters to the police department, the city council and 'fair' board the past four years complaining about the noise.

Of course most of my complaints are ignored, or responded with by how much this helps the downtown murchants.

This is different than living near an airport with noise that may bring. This event is only four years since it's beginning. The first year the producers filed for bankruptcy.  Of course they didn't loose any money - the bands after a fight were paid.  The people who set up the stages and food consessioners were'nt paid though.

Sort of sounds like a Donald Trump Casino project.

Flying Athiest The  'How Sign Language Innovators are bringing music to the Deaf " is interesting.

I have a rare hearing problem so appreciate inovations to bring hearing to the deaf.

As far back as the 1970's there was something called a bone phone.  The bone phone was a vibration 'speaker' system that rested around the neck where the 'speakers' vibrated the collar bone. It waas a great idea.  I haven't heard much about that technology for a long time.

Comment by Loren Miller on May 31, 2017 at 7:51am

Chris, sometimes the music consists of the instrument, the musician, and even the hall he plays in.  Give a listen to this live performance of Ralph Towner playing his composition, "Spirit Lake:"
